#ThreeDaysofTheatre | #TriDiwrnodoTheatr


It's a theatre takeover on amam.cymru this weekend! We've created a special compilation of our Notes from the Interior videos so far, introduced by our Artistic Director Paul Davies. It also features downloadable PDFs of all the tasks in the project. We're really enjoying this great new platform which brings together all the latest content from Wale's creative community. Check out Volcano's channel here.

Notes from the Interior is an Encounters Unknown project featuring Chris Elson, Neal McWilliams, Mairi Phillips, Rebecca Smith Williams and Manon Wilkinson. This week's task asks you to imagine Future Performances. A new task is released every Monday afternoon on our website and social media channels.

Mark Thomas - Bravo Figaro!
A Lockdown Livestream

In pre-Covid-19 times Mark has been a frequent and hugely popular visitor to our Bunker Theatre. We're delighted to be teaming up with him to bring you a lockdown edition of his award-winning show Bravo Figaro, with live intro and Q&A from Mark in his house.

As a teenager working on his dad's building sites, Mark used to cringe when he blasted opera out to the workers. Bravo Figaro is a show about him in all his grumpy glory.

On the 14th May at 7.30pm, Mark Thomas will introduce Bravo Figaro, and then we will all watch the show. After a short toilet break, Mark will answer any questions you might have, live from his house.

Tickets are £5. By buying a ticket via this link you are also supporting Volcano - thank you!

You can leave questions for Mark in the chatroom whilst the show is on.

Let's Dance!
 
Volcano's The Mighty New - have a private lockdown website where they can share ideas (and moves!) with their teacher. They made this video when they were being inspired by David Bowie's Let's Dance, and would like to share it with you!
